Have you ever thought, I'm doing everything I know to do, what's wrong with me? What's it going to take to get God to move on my behalf? If you have, you're not alone. It's a question most Christians ask and yet remain frustrated with the answers they receive. The answers usually go something like this: If you will pray a little longer and with more sincerity, spend time fasting, read a few more chapters in the Bible every day, and quit wasting time in front of the television, then God will answer your prayers. He's just waiting for you to shape up. In other words, your performance is a problem.
The fact is, that couldn't be further from the truth. You've Already Got It! Is a book filled with the good news that God's response isn't based on the things you must do; it's based on what Jesus did. As you read, you'll gain the knowledge to trust God. It's only the truth you know that will set you free!
Most Christians spend their entire lives chasing something they already have. They’re always asking the Lord to do something—to bless, heal, deliver, or prosper them—when in truth, they are seeking what they’ve already been given. They believe God can do anything, but not that He has (past tense) done very much. However, the book of Ephesians was written from an entirely different perspective: Everything has already been accomplished in Christ and given to the born-again believer. It’s both already done and already ours! A victorious Christian isn’t seeking victory but rather enforces the victory already won through the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We aren’t trying to win a battle.
We’re coming from a battle that has already been won! Jesus has conquered, and we’re enforcing His conquest. (Rom. 8:37.) As believers, we aren’t trying to get something from God; we’re fighting to receive the full manifestation of what’s already ours in Christ. We aren’t trying to get healed; we’re fighting because we’ve already been healed, and the devil is trying to steal it. We aren’t begging God to prosper us financially; we’re fighting the good fight of faith to see the prosperity that’s already been given to us manifest. We aren’t asking God to bless us because He’s already commanded His blessing upon us.
Through believing we’ve already got it, talking like we’ve already got it, and acting as we’ve already got it—we appropriate what the Lord has provided. It’s Already Done! Understanding that God has already blessed, healed, and prospered you remove the legalistic performance mentality. You won’t struggle under feelings of condemnation and unworthiness anymore, because you’ll recognize that everything has already been given. In fact, it was supplied long before you ever came along. And since it’s a gift (not based on your performance), your worthiness—or lack thereof—has nothing to do with it! How can you doubt that God would give you something that you know He’s already supplied? You can’t!
The knowledge that He’s already done it eliminates all doubt. No more will you pray, “O God, I know You can, but will You please do it for me?” You’ll know that it’s already done. The question is: Will you receive it? If you understand and embrace these truths, you’ll be ruined for much of what’s being called Christianity today. The proclamation that “God can heal, bless, deliver, and prosper you” sounds good on the surface but is just a profession of what can happen.
The Word declares, “God has already healed, blessed, delivered, and prospered you.” Can you see the difference? Enjoy God’s Provision This book contains the truths you need to begin experiencing a much greater manifestation of God’s power in your life. Your faith will be quickened, your heart encouraged, and your feet firmly set on His pathway of victory. Stop chasing your tail, and start enjoying God’s abundant provision.
More Than A Song
God wants you to have victory in your life. He wants to give you everything you need or ever will need. He wants to give you the desires of your heart. When you are willing to spend time in His presence, worshipping and praising Him, you will be amazed at what happens. His blessings will fall on you — totally fall on you.
There was a time that I didn’t know worship and praise were important. I just thought that as long as I loved God and was faithful to Him, as long as I went to church, paid my tithes, and was nice to people, things would turn out okay for me. But after I went into the ministry, I found out what really was involved in serving the Lord. When I learned the things about worship and praise that I am going to share with you in this book, my life was changed.
I found out that when I obeyed God’s Word, it came alive to me and God was able to manifest Himself to me. I found out that He had already set up a covenant with His people and that He had provided its blessings just for me and for you. Yes, there is a time to sing. There is a time to pray. There is a time to preach. There is a time to teach. There is a time to give thanks. There is a time to praise. But there is also a time to worship, and as you do and as I do we will begin to walk in all that God has provided for us and live day by day in a brand new realm.
FOR MY LIFE
Remove the root of negativity
This is where you begin to learn the Biblical principles that will make you free.
In 2010 Dr. Wright had a meeting with professionals from various countries in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. During that meeting, the term Pneuma-Psycho-Somatology (the study of the spirit, soul, and body connection) was coined from a lively discussion about the remarkable testimonies of healing of the spirit, soul, and body coming out of the For My Life retreat. They asked the question of whether or not these impressive results could be scientifically measured.
In 2011 Be in Health hosted a formal, scientific three-year physical, mental, and spiritual health study in the For My Life retreat. Only those who had no previous knowledge were invited to be part of the study. Subjects took identical surveys before the retreat, Friday-the last day of the retreat, and 1 and 4 months post attendance. The study was conducted under the auspices of the human research ethics committee of the University of Stellenbosch, Department of Interdisciplinary Health Sciences, and Department of Community Health.
